We’ve just released a new version of the Android Testing Support Library

This is mainly a bug fix release which includes fixes for Android Marshmallow, JaCoCo Code Coverage, Test Sharding and a more reliable way to close and synchronize with the Android software keyboard. For a comprehensive overview of the new features and fixes please refer to our release notes[1]. To get started with the latest version of ATSL, follow these instructions[2].

With this release we’re also announcing the deprecation of Android-Test-Kit [3]. We created a brand new website[4] dedicated only to ATSL. This website contains documentation, samples, downloads and more. Our support forum has also moved to a new home and can be found here[5].

The samples on github[6/7] have been updated to reflect the latest version of ATSL. New bugs should be filed against our new component on the AOSP bug tracker[8/9] and last but not least, we have a new logo, yay :-)

Happy testing from the ATSL team +Stephan Linzner, +Nick Korostelev & +Jose Alcérreca

Ladies and Gentlemen, it's time to start your engines and do a git pull on our Android testing samples repository[0]!

We updated all the samples to use Runner/Rules 0.3, Espresso 2.2 and the new @VisibleForTesting annotation from support-annotations[1].

Your shiny new dependency configuration should look like this:

dependencies {
    compile ''
    androidTestCompile ''
    androidTestCompile ''
    androidTestCompile ''

If you read the first article about Kotlin for Android, you´ll be glad to know that the second part is available. This time I´m talking about how to configure your project to get ready to work with Kotlin.

I also uploaded a first raw version of a complete app developed with Kotlin. At the moment is very simple, but will keep working on it:
